What does the "bark" sound like? Is it high-pitched or squeaky? Or low and growly?

I would double-check their sexes just in case but keep in mind that degus will mount each other even when not mating. It's usually a dominance or social thing.

It might just be an alarm call, does she sound kind of like an alarm (squeaking in timed intervals) or is it more random?

Sorry, it's very hard to figure out sounds based on written descriptions .

Either way, I would sex them again just to be sure. If you're not sure on the sexes, you could post a picture on here and I'll check for you .
